    We have pulled blood on our goats with results being negative for CAE,CL,and Johnes early this year. After shaving goats I noticed one goat who has always seems to cough or at least choke on hay a lot (a yearling). She has one “swollen” spot Underneath her jaw, leading me to think it’s a tooth...

    Hello. I have been only keeping goats for a few months so I’m very worried. I have an almost ten year old Nigerian dwarf doe that has developed a quarter sized lump under her right front armpit. It is towards the back side of her leg. It is hairless, scaly looking, and quite soft. It seemingly...

    Hi everyone! I posted about this doe a little while ago because of her scabs on her udder and general sickness. The forum determined it was probably staph, and so I’ve been treating her for that. She’s due literally any day now. Last night, I was brushing her (like I do every night) and felt...

    I noticed yesterday that Bella my one and a half year old doe has a hard lump the size of a grape over the left side of her ribcage. She is feeling fine, acting completely normal. It is very hard and immovable. She has not had a vaccination since I got her last April. I did some research and...

    I noticed last night that my wether has a lump on his jaw. It's about the size of a quarter, hard, not hot, doesn't seem to be painful. I'm thinking it's probably not CL, judging by the placement and the fact that I've had all of my goats for at least a year and none of them have shown outward...

    Hi everyone. My goat has a lump on his cheek. He also had one last year, and it thankfully went away in a few weeks. My suspicion is bee sting or somehow cutting himself on brambles, but I’d like to see what you guys think too, and if you think I should be concerned. (Also yes, I know he needs a...

    Hi everyone, Does anyone know what this might be? I didn’t notice any swelling yesterday, but today I saw this lump just under his chin. He’s not coughing and seems ok otherwise. I’ve called the vet, but she’s not in. Hopefully she’ll ring me back soon.

    Hi everyone. I’m going to call my vet about this but wanted to see if anyone has noticed this in a goat before. One of my boys has a lump very near and going on to his ribs. I felt my other two but couldn’t find anything like this on them. I googled it, and the first thing to come up was bone...

    Hello folks. My 50% Nigerian cross is currently 2 weeks before kidding, assuming she's bothered reading the goat handbook. She has kidded before, though not with me. Tested for CL, negative. She has developed a lump above the teat in her udder. Any ideas what it could be? Mastitis, with...

    Sybil has a lump in the general spot we gave her CDT about 8 months ago. I have to admit that I haven't had my hands on her that much lately because of life being nuts. She did have a knot after her CDT but I was sure it had gone away. Today, when I was trimming her hoofs I gave her a good...

    Hello all, I am a new to goats. A few months ago I bought 4 boer does and one buck from a local guy who was selling his herd. They are boer/ probably boer cross. He said they were UTD on vaccs, but in hindsight his animal husbandry was lacking, so I doubt the animals I purchased were properly...

    Hi! So I was petting my 5 week old Nigerian Dwarf buckling the other day and I noticed a lump under the skin on his right shoulder. He wouldn't hold still long enough for me to tell if it hurt or if he was just wondering why I wasn't petting him. The lump is about a centimeter across, but it...

    I have only had goats for a couple years so I am very much still a newby. About three weeks ago we added a Nubian doeling to our small herd. She was 6 weeks old. Yesterday I noticed she has a lump on her side in the area of the stomach that is a little smaller than a ping pong ball. It is...

    Well, following up on one of my previous posts, we had a little one who had a massive lump that turned into two lumps (in one?). We rushed him to the vet and the vet lanced the two lumps, freeing a rather large amount of pus that had no foul odor. The vet had us isolate the mother, the little...

    Adding to the list of issues we've been having this season, I just went to milk one of our new moms who only has one kid (the other was stolen). She had a lot of blood in her milk, and the more I milked her the more the milk went from red to pink. Her udder is lumpy, hot and huge. She appears to...
